The Australians, who were not due in India till September 29, arrived a week early to acclimatize following the postponement of the Champions Trophy one-day tournament in Pakistan due to security concerns. Former India coach and ex-Australia captain Greg Chappell, who is closely associated with the Rajasthan academy, ensured that excellent facilities were provided for his compatriots ahead of the four-Test series.
Australia is all set for an India tour and currently preparing for the warm-up matches amidst top-notch facilities. First Test starting in Bangalore from October 9. The remaining back-to-back Tests will be played in Mohali, New Delhi and Nagpur.
Now it seems that the recent bomb blasts in New Delhi and other cities of India didn’t deter the Australians and now there are no security concerns for them. That is strange, because they postponed the Pakistani tour on the same pretext and that cost Pakistan Cricket Board, the champion’s Trophy.
That is very unfair and typical on the part of the Australians. They go where money is, it seems.More on:Australia, Champions Trophy, India, Mohali, New Delhi, Rajhastan
